Putting the Library at Students' Fingertips
Foley, Marianne
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v24 n3 p167-176 2012
The absence of a well-defined space for library resources within course-management systems has been well documented in library literature. Academic libraries have sought to remedy this deficiency in numerous ways. This article describes how a "library nugget," or module, was added to the Buffalo State College course-management system, ANGEL. The nugget features direct access to the library catalog and several popular databases from within ANGEL. Links to library guides and research services are also provided. The nugget was a collaboration between reference librarians and the campus ANGEL administrator, who is the college's former systems librarian. User feedback has been extremely positive and campus database usage has soared. (Contains 2 figures.)
